Like others have described, the location made it an ideal spot for an overnight. The airstrip and surrounds are near the Ohio River and it would have been entertaining if there were planes landing or skydiving lessons happening..... The park is really a few lines of sites; nothing special or appealing. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a great idea but unfortunately needs a lot of work. The positive sides are: it's connected to an airstrip so there is lots of entertainment involving that and there is a top notch seafood restaurant in the park that's open Thursday through Sunday. The train that runs right next to the park wasn't an issue. The negatives are: the park manager has another job and isn't always available, many of the sites are soggy and the interior roads are full of potholes. This park needs some TLC. I believe it's owned by the county so that may be a factor. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Needed a quick overnight place. Many long term residents, but quiet and clean. Good restaurant on site and would probably be real fun when people are jumping. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great area, right next to Ohio River. Lovely view and trains were not a bother.If they only would mow the lawns! High grass and weeds made it difficult to walk dogs and sit outside. Sites very unlevel and sewer way to far back. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park is an interesting combination of RV sites, private airport and the West Virginia Sky Diving Club. RV sites were very basic, gravel pads. The hookups were conveniently located. Roads were gravel and easy to navigate. The pull-through site was long enough for our 40 foot coach but parking for our tow vehicle (Chevy Silverado) would have been a challenge if the park had been full. Verizon Cell service was great. Satellite reception for DirecTV was also good. There is a bar/restaurant on site with an interesting airport motif and good food. The staff was very pleasant to work with and enthusiastic about their operation. It was fine for us as a two night stay but it is not what we look for in an RV park. For small plane lovers and sky divers it would be great. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overnight stop for us on a Sunday so the Airpark and cafe were both busy with planes and diners. I called for availability the day before and the lady took my credit card info over the phone to hold our reservations. So they do take credit in addition to cash and checks. She gave us our site number and directions to our site including telling us to go into a lane that says "wrong way." I don't know why the sign is there since that's truly the only way to get to our site. There was never anyone in the office to check us in so we just parked. Our credit card was charged the next day. All sites are pull thru. Ours was barely long enough to fit our 40' motorhome and towed, but it was level. The sewer is way way in the back. You need at least 30' of hose to reach it. No wifi or cable. No shade. No pool or playground. No off leash dog park. The restrooms and bathhouse are in the cafe building. A train passes by at least twice a day. The 50 amp sites are next to the tracks. The 30 amp sites are further away from the tracks but closer to the cafe and showers. Nice little park. Great for an overnight. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Memorial Day weekend. Lots of stuff going on. Watched several sky divers and people flying motorized aerial devices, don't know how to describe them. Ate at the restaurant, good value. Staff was friendly, yes hard to find. The only time I saw the lady who took my reservations was in the restaurant she was the hostess. Sites are a little tight and unlevel but they work. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

The word for this park is eclectic. It is an airport with a skydive outfit with an airport restaurant which used some unused space between the railroad tracks and the airport for put in 30 FHU sites for RVs. There are not a lot of sites for transients, there is no one at the office Monday-Thursday and there is no one on the property during the day. Most sites are 30 amp. I'm sure this would be a different experience on the weekend when there is activity at the airport.

I spoke with the park owner over the phone, was assigned a site which was occupied when I arrived. Another call got me another site. She said she usually got to the property around 5pm but I didn't see anyone by 9pm so I tucked the overnight fee into an envelope and put it in the mail slot at the office. The instructions at the office were to fill out a registration card, but the only thing at the desk outside the locked office was envelopes for money.

I did speak to someone at the cafe that said the owner would probably show up that evening to mow grass and fly one of his planes, but that didn't happen either.

If you're a pilot and you like trains and you're going through here on a weekend, stop. Otherwise, keep going. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Coming from the west on I-64, the GPS tries to take you through Huntington. Ignore these instructions and continue onto exit 18/Rt 193. 4 lane divided highway goes almost directly to the airpark.

We stayed here while visiting our daughter for a week. It is convenient to fuel, grocery and shopping at the mall. We called to reserve a spot and the gentleman on the phone gave us a choice to pick from. The sites were level and gravel and full hook-up was available. The wi-fi never worked while we were there and even after notification was not fixed (only reason for the lower rating). No one was ever in the office and I wrote a check and placed in the envelope in the office door (same as the registration slip). The Fly-IN cafe was a great bonus and open on the weekends with excellent food and drink. This is the most convenient campground if staying in the Huntington, WV, Chesapeake/South Point, OH area. We plan to stay here again in the spring. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

One of our favorite RV parks but it takes a little understanding when going there. The owners are also busy flying Skydivers, managing a cafe on the property and it's a limited staff. You won't be greeted by an open office and in fact, the office is usually locked. You can find a site, register and slip your envelope through the door. Sometimes you have to search out the manager in order to pay. They seem to rely on the honor system a good part and see few problems. Seems to have a lot of seasonal or long-term RVs in the South row and there are about 10 sites for larger motorhomes between the office and cafe. Spaces are fairly narrow and there are no picnic tables, fire rings, etc, but there's a larger fire ring for the community. This is the home of the West Virginia skydivers and the managers of the park are quick to invite RV guests to parties or functions they are having, I got invited twice to even take a plane ride, which was super. Borders the Ohio River with access from the park, there' s a private runway with small planes, and a train track, but we never saw more than 2 trains a day. Very interesting place, just not fancy. The secret is to get a space with nobody around you and the views to the West are incredible. If units start coming in next to you, you won't see anything. We had a rude couple pull into the park at 4 am and idle their engine for 20 minutes while hooking up. Not the parks fault, just inconsiderate people who don't get it! We would stay here again. Nearby access to many stores several miles away in Barboursville. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

When we drove in we were underwhelmed by the appearance. No ambiance and the office was closed (2pm). Self registration packets were not available. We chose a site and called the number listed. The person we spoke to was to be at our site in an hour. No one ever showed up. We called the next morning and said that we were leaving. The person met us at the office and collected our fee. Passport good for only one night. The regular price was inflated and the Passport fee was also too high. The electric at our site did not work so we plugged into the site next door. Entertainment was provided by the 2am train that rumbled and tooted about 50 yards from our site. Avoid this site if possible. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.

This Park was listed in the Passport America directory. When checking in, we asked for PA rates and was told that the Park wouldn't be accepting it until next month. My directory was for the current year and was published last year. So I fail to see how this could all be true. The electricity fluctuated all evening and we had to turn one item off when we turned on another appliance. Recent rains had left puddles standing in the sites so difficult to sit up. Good dog walk along the River. Rather narrow street leading out to the campground. We probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Found this to be a nice surprise. Quiet at night. There is a airfield that is for skydivers, were there during the weekend and it was fairly active. Easy off/on highway. I feel it is a work in progress and the owner is upgrading and doing a nice job. There is rec hall with TV. We were able to walk to the Ohio River which borders the airstrip and you can sit along the river. We just stayed overnight. We would stay here again.

Very nice park without many of the extra amenities we wouldn't be using anyway, but quite often end up paying for at other parks. As a pilot and train buff, I enjoyed watching the skydiver's land through the weekend. The park is on a beautiful section of the Ohio River with a path and steps down to the banks of the water, on the other side of the grass strip, and some close up barge traffic you can watch. Very little air traffic, only from the sky diver's aircraft. We also liked the fact that there is a CSX rail line bordering the park with occasional trains through the day. Curiously, the engines seldom sound their horn here for the crossing. There aren't picnic tables at the site, but again, it's a good, quiet and safe place to park. There are very large shopping malls several miles away that have everything you need. We came in for one night and stayed almost a week. And enjoyed antique shopping in Huntington. They say a helicopter pilot once came in to stay for a night and ended up staying 7 months. Very pleasant experience. We camped at Robert Newlon Airpark RV Park in a Motorhome.
